President Reagan felt very strongly about reaching across the aisle and working in a bipartisan manner. He used to joke that he and Speaker of the House Tip O’Neill could argue all day long, but at 5 pm they could enjoy each other’s company over a friendly glass of beer. Another friend from across the aisle was Senator Ted Kennedy. The two men knew how to be political adversaries, not political enemies. In 2002 when Senator Kennedy presented President Reagan with the Congressional Gold Medal, he described the president as “a good friend and a generous foe.” And that the President “sought to defeat his opponents, not destroy them.” On April 28, 2007, Senator Ted Kennedy spoke at the Reagan Library to a sold-out audience which included Mrs. Nancy Reagan and Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. Let’s listen.

On April 29, 2016, America Online co-founder Steve Case came to the Reagan Library to speak about his new book, “The Third Wave: An Entrepreneur’s Vision of the Future.” In the 1990s, Steve Case built and grew AOL into the top-performing company in the United States. At its peak, more than half of all consumer internet traffic in the US ran through the AOL service that Steve created. Then, later on when Steve engineered AOL’s merger with Time Warner, he became for a while the Chairman of the biggest media and communications empire in the world. Let’s listen:

Young Tom Brokaw, raised in the Midwest town of Yankton, South Dakota, got his first job in television at KTIV in Sioux City, Iowa, and eventually found himself heading west to report for NBC News in Los Angeles, California. The year? 1966, right when Ronald Reagan was campaigning for election to his first public office as Governor of California. Tom Brokaw came to the Reagan Library on April 14, 2012, to discuss his sixth best-selling book, “The Times of our Lives.” The book, much like countless Ronald Reagan speeches, quite admirably takes on the challenge of inspiring Americans to make a positive difference in their families, their communities, and their country as we work together to revitalize the American dream. During his time at the Reagan Library, Tom Brokaw sat down in conversation with Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute executive director John Heubusch to discuss the book, his memories of Ronald Reagan, and the importance of civility. Let’s listen.

On April 7, 2016, Steve Forbes came to the Reagan Library to discuss his latest book, “Reviving America: How Repealing Obamacare, Replacing the Tax Code and Reforming the Fed will Restore Hope and Prosperity,” a book which could act as a common-sense blueprint to restoring hope, growth, and opportunity to our society today. Let’s listen.

In this podcast, we’ll look at two different types of challenges – first, the PATCO Air Traffic Controllers strike in 1981 and the President’s decisive plan of action.

Let’s listen.

Ronald Reagan was convinced that US defenses had been allowed to deteriorate during the 1970s and that this condition had left the United States vulnerable. President Reagan sought a substantial increase in US defense spending, hoping to restore some programs canceled by Carter, such as the neutron bomb (the enhanced radiation weapon), and the B-1 bomber. So we’ll start this podcast with his speech from March 6th. Let’s listen.

In this week’s “A Reagan Forum” we present Gianno Caldwell, founder of Caldwell Strategic Consulting and a political analyst on Fox News. Gianno sat down in conversation with Reagan Foundation and Institute Chief Administrative Officer Joanne Drake to discuss how conservative values helped a kid from the south side of Chicago find a life of opportunity. Trapped within the expectations and traditions of our communities, families, political parties, faith, race, and gender, we fail to challenge our politicians and ourselves to create real change. Now more than ever, we need to confront preconceived notions about the Democrats and Republicans, public policy, and American history. Let’s listen.
